The Draw Has Been Made For Tailteann Cup Opening Rounds
By PJ Browne Updated

The draw for the opening rounds of the Tailteann Cup was made on Monday morning.

This is the inaugural edition of the second tier football championship. It features teams who will play in Division three and four of the 2023 National League who did not reach their provincial finals in 2022.

The championship will be played on a knockout basis, and organised geographically in northern and southern sections up until the semi-final stage. An open draw will be made for the semi-finals. New York will enter the competition at the quarter-final stage, and play in the southern section.

GAA President Larry McCarthy said that the competition is being split into northern and southern sections to "enhance" it through the playing of local rivals, and also to reduce travel costs for teams and supporters.

The preliminary round of the southern section will be played this weekend, with the first round of both sections taking place on the weekend of May 28/29.

The winner of the 2022 Tailteann Cup will be guaranteed a place in the 2023 Sam Maguire Competition.
